You know what they say, everything happens for a reason and you know what, they are right! As a designer, I have had the absolute pleasure to do something that I love and to sit in on those delightful client meetings! It’s such a great feeling when you deliver an outcome you and your client love! But we all know this doesn’t always come straight away and I must admit I had to giggle when I saw this collection of posters brought to you by a collection of Ireland’s creatives. This work is in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital and these posters are all for sale with all the proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital. I have selected a few personal favourites, the rest can be found here. (Believe me, it’s worth it!)
I just read this blog post by Dustin Curtis, and he’s right! There is absolutely no point in waiting for that opportunity to come to you. My high school physics teacher once warned me not to wish my life away when I said that I was looking forward to a particular day. Engraving this in my mind and this post has just rejuvenated my passion of keeping busy! Take a look…
A friend just shared these amazing photos with me. A Dutch historian, Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse, blends history into the present day by overlaying two images of the same place. I love looking through old photos of towns or cities and trying to determine which part of town is it and how things have changed. Look at the full article here.
This is an amazing video by Mat Whitecross for Coldplay. Their recent single taken from the album Mylo Xyloto. I love this music video because it tells you more of a story. Of late, there has been a flurry of music videos which simply show the artist or group singing in the sun. However, this video is more striking and encourages the viewer to stop and watch the video. There is also obvious humour within this video with the band dressed up as elephants. I could watch this mini film a number of times without getting bored and ultimately wanting an elephant onesie for Christmas!
I’ve been a little rubbish recently with my blog, so I apologise for that! So I thought I would share a little gem of typography. I love this typographic piece “Treat Yourself” I found it while I was searching google images with this phrase! It looks as though it could be a tattoo, but it instantly caught my eye when I was scanning the page. Feast your eyes on it!
